I have done a OCR application for handwritten normal characters.For the segmentation of characters I have used histogram profile method. That successfully works for normal English characters.

I have used horizontal projection for line segmentation and vertical projection for character segmentation.

To segment lines of cursive hand written article I can use horizontal projection as previous. But I can't use same methodology for cursive English character segmentation since they are merged each other and also slanted. Can anyone please help me with a way to segment cursive characters.Thank You very much.

Hi, I am pursuing graduation and doing project on OCR. I am new to c++, could you please give a sample code for segmentation using projection profiles? I am able to get horizontal Histogram but not sure how to scan that and get the lines segmented and use them for vertical projection. I would be so glad if i get a sample code, Thankyou
